A slave to the Goddess Flora shares his garden adventures.
Moss in summer is a rarity here in St. Louis too, but I found a great patch in my neighbor's yard (posted on Instagram) just this morning! I thought you guys had moss everywhere, year-round up there? Darn geographic stereotypes!
We do have a lot of moss, even in summer but it's much greener in the winter.
I love our moss, and that it stays green in shady areas. Great vignette.
Moss and towering evergreens-you've gotta love the PNW!
It's a love hate relationship I have with moss. Either way, the picture is very cool! I wonder about the slightly twisted trunk; what tree it belongs to. Although the moss get top billing, this picture wouldn't be as good without it.
I think the tree was a Japanese Maple but I'm not sure. I like moss on rocks and pots but not so much in the lawn.
Nice! If I didn't know there was a rock under there, I would be tempted to lay down and rest my head awhile. Dreamy spot, indeed!
A nap is always a good idea!
I was just noticing yesterday that some of my eternally green moss is now brown and crispy. What a summer! (new all time record for summer days over 90 here in Portland, today will be #27).
Yikes, that's a lot of hot days! What a summer.
I don't like moss because it grows on my lawn, Peter.
Moss in the lawn is no fun!
Lovely! Moss is such an underrated yet elegant 'plant' to have in the garden :)
Moss can be so beautiful!
I now have mossy ball lust : )
I'm a huge fan of moss. It has been in short supply during the heat of the summer, but back with our cooler temps this week. :) Great pic!
Hope your cooler temperatures bring you a nice respite from the heat!
Nice photo, no moss around here though, it has been very dry lately in London although it is raining right now! Just a slight drizzle, we need a lot more to get the moss going.
Oh yes, much more moss in our wet winters too!
My mind went in another direction. Sounds like Laurin and I saw the same thing...Ahem...well, anyway, I love moss, too! Though in my area, most of the moss is crispy. Still greenish, but definitely crispy, unless it's in one of the few moist spots left.
See how you are:)Winter rains will change that crispy thing!
Only in the PNW, LOL.
Ain't it the truth.
Another indication that your climate is still different from mine despite your toasty summer.
Oh yes, very different.
Moss! It's still alive somewhere! Rejoice :)
I guess we really are still in the great Pacific Northwest.
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I love to hear your thoughts.
